GEANT4 simulations of the n_TOF spallation source and their benchmarking
Abstract.Neutron production and transport in the spallation target of the n_TOF facility at CERN has been simulated with GEANT4. The results obtained with different models of high-energy
Experimental neutron capture data of 58Ni from the CERN n_TOF facility
The neutron capture cross section of 58 Ni was measured at the neutron time of flight facility n_TOF at CERN, from 27 meV to 400 keV neutron energy. Special care has been taken to identify all the
Measurement of the Ge70(n,γ) cross section up to 300 keV at the CERN n_TOF facility
Neutron capture data on intermediate mass nuclei are of key importance to nucleosynthesis in the weak component of the slow neutron capture processes, which occurs in massive stars. The $(n,\gamma)$
Integral measurement of the 12C(n, p)12B reaction up to 10 GeV
Abstract.The integral measurement of the 12C(n, p)12B reaction was performed at the neutron time-of-flight facility n_TOF at CERN. The total number of 12B nuclei produced per neutron pulse of the
Review and new concepts for neutron-capture measurements of astrophysical interest
The idea of slow-neutron capture nucleosynthesis formulated in 1957 triggered a tremendous experimental effort in different laboratories worldwide to measure the relevant nuclear physics input
80Se(n,γ) cross-section measurement at CERN n TOF
. Radiative neutron capture cross section measurements are of fundamental importance for the study of the slow neutron capture ( s -) process of nucleosynthesis. This mechanism is responsible for the


The use of the simulation tool GEANT for neutron transport at energies below 20 MeV is discussed, in particular with regard to shielding and dose calculations, and reasonable agreement is found for the neutron flux through a slab of material and the dose released in soft tissue by neutrons.
Performance of the neutron time-of-flight facility n_TOF at CERN
Abstract.The neutron time-of-flight facility n_TOF features a white neutron source produced by spallation through 20GeV/c protons impinging on a lead target. The facility, aiming primarily at the
High-accuracy determination of the neutron flux at n_TOF
The neutron flux of the n_TOF facility at CERN was measured, after installation of the new spallation target, with four different systems based on three neutron-converting reactions, which represent
Neutron Capture in s-Wave Resonances of Iron-56, Nickel-58, and Nickel-60
The neutron capture widths of s-wave resonances in /sup 56/Fe (27.7 keV), /sup 58/Ni (15.4 keV), and /sup 60/Ni (12.5 keV) have been determined using a setup completely different from previous
Resonance neutron-capture cross sections of stable magnesium isotopes and their astrophysical implications
We have measured the neutron capture cross sections of the stable magnesium isotopes {sup 24,25,26}Mg in the energy range of interest to the s process using the neutron time-of-flight facility
Advanced nuclear energy systems and the need of accurate nuclear data: the n_TOF project at CERN
To satisfy the world's constantly increasing demand for energy, a suitable mix of different energy sources has to be devised. In this scenario, an important role could be played by nuclear energy,
